Re: Tele newbie... I was given these, have no idea what they are.

My partner was given a pair of these and she skied them modestly for 3 years or so.

Re: New to xcd, need help figuring out gear for rivervalley exploring

I think you are referring to the Madshus Glittertind boot. Thanks for the info. Have you any experience with this boot? I was at a shop in Calgary and they carry BCXC gear, and the rep helping me had said they don’t carry Alaska’s because when they first came out they were no good. He then preceded...

Re: New to xcd, need help figuring out gear for rivervalley exploring

FWIW - I’m also a noob and have been having a BLAST on my simple set up.... Madshus Eon 195cm WAXLESS with a NNNBC AUTO binding. I am 5’10 and 170lbs.I’ve been skiing cut blocks, FSRs, looping trails around lakes, traversing a mountain and then skiing down (gently). And for a first set up I’m quite ...

noobie Sharing some recent stoke

Hey all, I started skiing this winter and wanted to share some pictures of my adventures. The stoke is real, and I’m loving backcountry Nordic skiing, and making attempts at tele turns. I bought a pair of Madshus Eons, 195cm, waxless, and mounted NNNBC AUTO bindings to ski the rolling hills of cherr...

Also, I have serious beard envy from that photo!

That moustache is over 50 years old... the beard has come and gone.... but I TOTALLY get it.

Re: New BC XC skier lookin for tips!

I’d like to thank everyone for their wisdom and insight, and for taking the time to share with me. Today I got out again with our small crew of 4. The old timers went out and bought new sets of Alpina Control E64 @ 195cm, waxless, with NNNBC binding. One of the men let me use his other set of skis (...

I've got a pair of Asnes Nansens that might fit the bill nicely at 190cm that are for sale:

Re: New BC XC skier lookin for tips!

I am looking for one ski/boot combo that can “do it all”. I’m not getting into ski touring, nor XC in tracks.... ungroomed, fresh snow. Our trails will be mostly FSR, Bush, rolling hills, ungroomed, in the trees. I will be solo, with my partner, or in our small group of four. I would like to do long...

New BC XC skier lookin for tips!

I must admit this is a foreign thing for me to be posting in a forum asking for help! But after my searching I keep finding my way here..... I live in the Okanagan/Kootenay boundary of British Columbia, Canada, in a small ‘village’ called Cherryville. Where FSR, cut blocks, rolling hills and unreal ...
